Sir Jim Ratcliffe plans to launch a €210 million double strike on Spain to transform Manchester United, with Newcastle’s star man ‘very keen’ to sign the European giants in a record move ‘Close’, with Tottenham in talks over a second attack on Serie A. this month.

Racliffe has big plans to bring Vinicius Junior to Manchester United

Manchester United’s new investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe has ambitious plans to bring Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Junior to Old Trafford this summer, and is prepared to pay up to €150 million to sign the Brazilian. is set.

The British businessman is set to take full sporting control of Old Trafford after agreeing a deal that would see him take a 25% stake in the club’s Glazers, paying the American £1.3 billion for the privilege.

while Manchester United Fans will be hoping that investment in the squad comes in January. Ratcliffe confirmed a deal to finalize a 25% stake in the club would not be finalized until “early February”.

The Red Devils will therefore be working within a more modest budget and the focus this month will be on getting rid of some of the club’s unwanted stars, as well as adding a new striker, potentially on loan, to the mix.

But the flip side of keeping their powder relatively dry this month means United supporters can expect quite a summer showing from the club as Ratcliffe plots how he can return United to the pinnacle of British and European football.

And according to Sport, Ratcliffe is ready to make some bold, serious plays. Vinicius Jr. I’m going to Old Trafford this summer.

They claim Ratcliffe believes Real are open to selling him to fund a huge move for Kylian Mbappe, who plays in the same position as him.

And the 71-year-old is reportedly prepared to go up to €150m (£128.6m) to convince. Real Madrid They are selling a winger who scored 86 goals this summer.

Real president Florentino Perez says he will think long and hard about the possibility of a sale, but it could become a reality if he can get a deal done for Mbappe.

Manchester United activate Martin Zuvimendi’s withdrawal clause

United’s move for Vinicius Junior may not be the club’s only strike against La Liga this summer, with Ratcliffe also reportedly willing to trigger the €60m (£51.6m) exit clause in the deal. Martin Zuvimendi.

The 24-year-old is regarded as one of the best holding midfielders in Europe and would provide a quality upgrade to United’s midfield, with Sofian Amrabat having underperformed since signing on loan from Fiorentina.

With Erik Ten Hag unsure of signing the Moroccan on a permanent basis, Ratcliffe is thought to have identified Zubimendi as the perfect replacement and is prepared to meet his withdrawal clause to keep him away from hometown side Real Sociedad.

Manchester United are thought to have already made contact with the four-capped Spanish midfielder’s agent, but Zuvimendi has revealed he is reluctant to leave the club mid-season as they look to advance to the last 16 of the Champions League. A two-legged relationship with PSG awaits them next as they look to progress to the quarter-finals of UEFA’s top level competition.

However, a summer move is also possible and United could offer him a significant salary for his current contract, which expires in 2027.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are also interested in signing Spanish star Zuvimendi.

But Manchester United are not alone in their search for Zuvimendi, and the player is also one of the few new midfield talents that Mikel Arteta is keen to bring to Arsenal.

The Gunners brought in Declan Rice last summer but are likely to actively pursue another midfielder this summer due to ongoing doubts over the futures of Thomas Partey, Jorginho and Mohamed Elneny.

To that end, Amadou Onana, Arthur Vermeeren and Douglas Luiz have all been touted as targets in recent weeks.

Now Romano has provided an update on his pursuit of the midfielder, recently telling Caught Offside that it is more likely that there will be some move in the summer.

“We’ve been talking a lot about Arsenal and various midfielders recently, with big names like Douglas Luiz, Amadou Onana and Martin Zuvimendi being linked with the Gunners. It seems unlikely that a deal will be completed this January, but we will see whether the situation will change in the summer.

“So which of those players would be the best fit for Mikel Arteta’s team? My personal feeling is that Zuvimendi would be fantastic, even if Onana and Douglas already have the advantage of knowing the Premier League. Zubimendi is a fantastic player. He can help with his vision on the ball, quality and intelligence. He is a complete midfielder.

“Still, it is important to note that he is very happy at Real Sociedad and is only focused on his club. He has always wanted to stay there, so he has rejected the opportunity to leave in recent years.”

Zuvimendi has been at Sociedad since he was a youngster, first re-signing in 2011 and coming through the youth ranks before making his first-team debut in the 2018/19 season. He made 169 senior appearances, scoring seven times.
